We're keeping it short and sweet for this week with complete streams of a few new albums definitely worth taking the time for a full listen. Quality trumps quantity this week, ladies and gentlemen, and thanks to, we get to wrap our ears around some great music before it's released.


Death Cab For Cutie: Codes and Keys

The full-length follow-up to Death Cab For Cutie’s smash success of Narrow Stairs was recorded at various studios over the course of several months in 2010, a formula departure of sorts for the band that features a greater presence of guitarist/producer Chris Walla’s compositions. Frontman Ben Gibbard, who likened Codes and Keys to Brian Eno’s Another Green World.


Codes and Keys arrives in proper form on May 31. Pick it up at Death Cab's official site.

My Morning Jacket: Circuital


The sixth studio LP from My Morning Jacket arrives in just a few days (May 31), and fans can listen to the entire thing now before they by courtesy of the nonprofit wizards over at NPR.


Circuital is a headlong leap down an artistic rabbit hole for the band, who have seen a skyrocketing of exposure and attention since 2008’s Evil Urges, their fifth and most recent release. Listeners will find the experience more consistent in sound and scope than their last offering, and – if your take is anything like mine – considerably more enjoyable in its psychedelia flirtation. Check it out below.



Get your preorder on and keep up with My Morning Jacket at their official site


Cults: Cults


Have a listen to Cults self-titled debut album below courtesy, once again, of NPR. We don't know too much about these cats, but by the sound of what we're hearing below, that's definitely about to change. 



If the music grabs you by the short & curlies, head to Cults' official site to preorder the record and dig deeper.
